It's that crazy time of year again!  If you're anything like me, the hustle has hit you full force this week.  Between kid's ballgames, holiday parties, setting up a Christmas tree and shopping for gifts, the last thing we need to stress over is our social media accounts.
Unfortunately for small business owners and marketers, the Internet doesn't have a Christmas break. But, there are some steps you can take to continue building your business during the holidays as well as spending quality time for your families.
Today on the show I'm excited to be talking with my friend Peg Fitzpatrick about how to best use social media during the holidays.  
Peg Fitzpatrick is the co-author of The Art of Social Media: Power Tips for Power Users with Guy Kawasaki and has been seen on Time Inc., HufIington Post, Inc. Magazine, and NPR’s Tech Nation. She also runs social media campaign for some of the top companies around. She’s spearheaded successful social-media campaigns for Motorola, Audi, Google, Virgin, and more.  On top of all that, she’s probably taught me more about Pinterest than anyone else.

If you're marketing on any social media platform, you're interested in increasing your followers. There is a big difference, though, between simply having followers and having engaged followers. How can you bring your followers to the next level, and why is it so important? 
To answer this question, I interview Dawn-Swick Renshaw, one of the biggest supporters of this show.
Dawn has been in love with social media since she accepted her first Facebook friend request in 2008. She is now the owner of Stoney Creek Social Media, an agency located in Michigan that manages over fifty unique businesses on many different platforms. She takes pride in getting to know her clients on a personal as well as a professional level so as to accurately express their brand via social media.

The fairly recent addition of promoted pins on Pinterest provides another way to take full advantage of this platform. Promoted pins are basically ads on Pinterest. They can raise awareness, boost engagement, and increase traffic to your website- all while maintaining an organic look and feel.
Maybe you've used promoted pins with some success, or maybe you're just wondering if they're right for you. Either way, you'll want to check out this interview with Alisa Meredith.

Social Warfare was born from the desire to make social sharing faster and easier as well as beautiful, efficient, and responsive. After realizing that nothing existed that met all of these needs, Nicholas, Jason, and Dustin set out to create their own solution. What resulted was a plugin based on customization, psychology, and paradox of choice (or, to the lay-person, limiting options - which, believe it or not, can be a good thing!)
Although much of our discussion focuses on the great features of Social Warfare, the interview is definitely not a long commercial. Nicholas, Jason, and Dustin offer some great tips on social sharing in general. They touch on many topics, including analytics tracking, the use of click-to-tweets, and the importance of perception.

Welcome back to part 2 of a special event on Visual Marketing where I team up with Phil Mershon from Social Media Examiner. 
This week, four more visual marketing experts weigh in. They offer some great advice for making the most of visual platforms like Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook. They've got lots of tricks to save you time and cut down on the hassle of keeping up with multiple platforms. They are also gracious enough to candidly share their biggest (and most humorous) mistakes to help spare the rest of us the pain of learning these lessons the hard way.
Sep 14, 2015


This week I join forces with Phil Mershon, director of events for Social Media Examiner, on Blab to bring you part one of a two part discussion on visual marketing. We discuss some compelling visual marketing statistics (if you aren't already convinced of the importance of visuals you will be!), and offer some advice for how to fit some visual marketing strategies into your busy schedule.
We found a few experts who were willing to take a turn in the hot seat to share tactics, tips and tools that have worked for them. They also reveal their biggest fails and what they have learned from their mistakes.
